Bad Week For Ex-Dolphins: Chad Johnson's Sex Tape Leaks, Joey Porter Goes To Jail

The Miami Dolphins didn't have the best Christmas week: Despite smothering the Bills on Sunday, they were knocked out of the playoffs yet again when the Bengals later won. But the team can at least take comfort that their holidays weren't nearly as awful as two former Fins stars.

Loudmouth linebacker Joey Porter spent the weekend in jail in California after getting popped for allegedly writing bad checks. And Chad Johnson woke up on Christmas morning to news that his sex tape had leaked.

Porter spent three years as the Dolphins de facto spokesplayer until he ripped then-coach Tony Sparano and the team's management one time too many and was sent packing to Arizona back in 2010.

Despite spending 13 years in the NFL and making four Pro Bowls, Porter evidently has run into some money troubles, at least according to Clark County, Nevada sheriffs. Porter was pulled over on a traffic stop in Bakersfield, California on Friday, then spent the weekend behind bars on the phony check cashing charge.

Johnson, meanwhile, got an early Christmas gift via WorldStarHipHop, which published photos of what it says is a longer sex tape featuring the former wide receiver, who was booted from the Dolphins after head-butting his girlfriend before the season opener.

The site says the video shows Johnson's "alleged sexcapades with a full audience in the background," and a "stripper riding Chad until the wheels fall off."

The video was allegedly shot three years ago. The NSFW photos are over at Deadspin or WorldStarHiphop.
